Bridal Spectacular to unveil new wedding trends

check out this article we found:

 

Make way for taffeta and chrysanthemums! Bridal Spectacular, one of the longest-running bridal shows in Las Vegas, heads to the Cashman Center this weekend.

Gathering the largest number of local wedding vendors into one convenient space, Bridal Spectacular is a great place for brides to compare industry offerings side-by-side. Many local florists, bridal shops, tuxedo shops, DJs, invitation experts and venues will be on-hand to deliver dreams. Watch fashion shows of the latest bridal trends, enter in prize drawings and sample cakes from top-notch bakeries. The interactive experience will be sure to generate ideas and ease in choosing which wedding vendors are right for you.

The bridal show visits Vegas twice a year in January and August. With winter being the slower wedding season, the upcoming show means destination brides can get more quality time with potential vendors. And brides ready to book a service on the spot will receive great deals as companies offer special discount packages specifically for attendees.

Las Vegas nuptial expert, Angie Kelly of Peachy Keen Unions, gives us tips on how couples can make the most of their expo experience. First, she recommends visiting the expo website beforehand. “Familiarizing yourself with the vendors will give you an opportunity to identify your front-runners in advance. Know who you are interested in talking to and come prepared with questions. With so many vendors, it can be overwhelming to try and remember all that you want to ask. Having questions handy will help you get the most out of the experience.”

Attendees can look forward to viewing impressive booths that showcase each company’s individual strengths. Kelly advises couples pay attention to booth design to compare trademark styles. “Photography and wedding cinema companies likeMaple Hill Photography and Moxie Studio (respectively) have made successful matches in the past by captivating couples with stunning displays. Be sure to note the feel to help find what’s right for you.”

Confusing Wedding Terms Defined

Terms like, “charger,” or, “tablescape,” deem confusing to many brides who have never planned a wedding. 

When wedding planners refer to the “charger” they are talking about a decorative plate that sits under the main dinner plate.  The “Charger” is used to incorporate style and theme into most place settings. 

Another term brides often here is “tablescape.”  Sounds complicated , but simply means the center piece.

Scheana Marie Is Engaged? Vanderpump Rules Star Talks Wedding Plans And Music Career!

Check out this article:

Delusion: party of one. Make that 2! Scheana Marie is possibly engaged and that calls for celebration – and the release of a new song, “Good as Gold.” Is she talking about friendships or engagement rings?

The Vanderpump Rules star describes her future fiance as “no drama” and says that’s what makes him bad for reality TV. “We just work,” she gushes to OK Magazine. She beams when she starts talking about Shay, which is cute. Maybe there is something sincere about Scheana after all!

Shay’s other perk: “He’s faithful.”

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON FOR THE REST! 

 

“I was close to single for five years,” Scheana says of her life pre-Shay. “It’s really close to impossible to meet a good quality guy in LA.” Case in point: Jax Taylor! “I always knew I would want to marry a guy from back home. Someone who has the same values as me and is very family oriented.” Does that include homewrecking?

As for future wedding plans, Scheana reveals “We definitely talk about it, but you’ll see!” Scheana says she would not have SUR cater her wedding, but she would have Lisa Vanderpump handle the bar – including stocking her new LVP Sangria line and Villa Blanca wine.

Other than possible wedding plans, Scheana talks music. “I’m still working on my music. I’m doing some other stuff on my own outside of the show with a little more of a hip hop feel.” Shay is actually producing some of Scheana’s new stuff and they are also working with another SUR employee who is also a DJ.

Aaaaand lucky for us Scheana just released a new single, Good as Good. “It’s a very catchy, upbeat, song,” Scheana says comparing it to Ke$ha. “It’ll definitely get stuck in your head!”

If you’re willing to take the risk of getting Scheana stuck in your head, her new song is below!

Infosys founder sends ‘Bond-style’ wedding invitations as his daughter ties the knot in Bangalore

For his daughter’s wedding on Wednesday (November 27), Shibulal sent a ‘coded’ wedding invitation to his guests for their safety and security.

As expected, there were only a limited number of guests at the wedding when Shruti, the billionaire’s daughter, married a businessman in Bangalore.

Wedding Planning: 30 Expert Tips and Tricks

Check out this article:

 

When planning your wedding, there are things that are nice to know, like that mermaid silhouettes are all the rage or that purple is making a comeback. Then, there are things you need to know — advice so essential that any bride who’s lucky enough to hear it thinks, “I’m so glad someone told me that!” If you’re wondering whether there’s something you may have missed (or even if you’ve got everything under control), check out our indispensable planning secrets.

 

1. Guests Come First

Get a grip on the approximate number of guests you’ll invite before settling on a venue. This will ensure there’s ample space for your crew. As a rule of thumb, allow for 25 to 30 square feet per guest. That may seem like a lot, but it’s not if you count the space you’ll need for the tables, bustling waiters, the band, and the dance floor.

2. Investigate Wedding Blackout Dates

Know ahead of time if your wedding date falls on the same day as a trade conference, charity walk, or other local event that could affect traffic and hotel room availability.

3. Listen to Mother Nature

Heed the weather and other potential annoyances. Guests have been known to skip out early from hotter-than-hot summer tent weddings and improperly heated winter loft receptions. Bugs (gnats, deerflies, and no-see-ums) also swarm in certain areas during certain seasons. Consider renting pest control tanks to alleviate the problem or including bug repellent in guests’ gift bags. And if you want a sunset ceremony, make sure you know when to say your vows by checking SunriseSunset.com.

 

 

4. Check Your Credit

Take advantage of the high cost of weddings and sign up for a credit card with a rewards program. Whether it gives you airline miles or great shopping deals, consolidating all wedding-related purchases to this card will help you accumulate thousands of rewards points (which could be used for your honeymoon).

 

 

5. Pay It Forward

Let one vendor lead you to another. Your wedding photographer can tell you which florist’s blooms really pop, and your reception manager should know which band packs the dance floor.

6. Lighten Your List

The easiest way to trim your wedding budget? Cut your guest list. Remember, half of your wedding expenses go to wining and dining your guests. If it’s costing you $100 per person, eliminating one table of 10 can save you $1,000.

 

 

7. Ask and You Might Receive

Request an extra hour for cocktails or for your band to throw in that Frank Sinatra sound-alike before you sign on the dotted line. Most vendors would rather secure the reservation than nickel-and-dime you early on and turn you off. Later on, though, they may have less of a motive to meet you halfway.

 

 

8. Make a Meal Plan

Another unforeseen expense? Feeding your wedding day crew. Before you sign the contracts, make sure you’re not required to serve the same meal to your vendors that guests will receive. Otherwise, you could be paying for 20 additional lobster tails. Choose a less expensive (but equally hearty) meal for them instead. You will have to let your wedding caterer know a couple of days before the wedding exactly how many vendors you need to feed (don’t forget photography assistants and band roadies) and what you want them to serve.

 

 

9. Get Organizationally Focused

In a three-ring binder, compile all your correspondences with vendors, notes you make during meetings, and photos or tear sheets from magazines you want vendors to see. Set up a special email address dedicated to your wedding, and store important vendor numbers in your cell phone.

 

 

10. Tend to Your Bar

Typically, you need one bartender per 50 guests to keep the line at a minimum. But if you’re serving a signature cocktail that cannot be made ahead of time (or in large quantities), consider adding an extra server designated to this task.

 

 

11. Leave Some Room in Your Wallet

Your wedding budget should follow this formula: 48 to 50 percent of total budget to reception; 8 to 10 percent for flowers; 8 to 10 percent for attire; 8 to 10 percent for entertainment/music; 10 to 12 percent for photo/video; 2 to 3 percent for invites; 2 to 3 percent for gifts; and 8 percent for miscellaneous items like a wedding coordinator. It’s essential to allocate an extra 5 to 10 percent of your money for surprise expenses like printing extra invites because of mistakes, additional tailoring needs, umbrellas for a rainy day, and ribbons for the wedding programs. Go to TheKnot.com/budgeter for an interactive budget allows you to add your own items.
